*Our brethren over at Bruins Nation sometimes take some unfair criticism as merely being some sort of anti-USC shouting platform. That's a Straw Man if I've ever seen one. What I admire about BN is that they demand excellence, and if that requires the brutal, honest truth, so be it.
*The world would be a damn fine place if everyone were like Kyle. I really mean that.
*Doug's been wrestling with ambiguity - to love soccer or to scorn it. He's finally found one thing he loves about it. No disagreement here.

Quite literally, he all but mentioned Burnt Orange Nation in today's 3-point stance; no doubt because of our little interview here on the blog. You can't see me, but I'm doing a pelvic thrust right now. I might get fired.
Ivan is getting aboard the Burnt Orange Express. Sort of.
*Lastly, EDSBS has an essay assignment for the CFB bloggers. We'll get to that later today.
*Oh, yeah, that petition thing. We're getting close. Finish it!
